ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Three men have been sentenced to life in prison for killing a woman outside a St. Louis White Castle restaurant before she could testify in an assault case.

A judge sentenced Leon Moss, Christopher Spates and Donald White on Thursday. They were convicted in October of first-degree murder and armed criminal action. Their victim was Moss’s ex-girlfriend, 36-year-old Angie Young.

Moss was facing trial on an assault charge that could have earned him 15 years in prison at the time of the August 2011 attack. Young, a single mother, was supposed to be the complaining witness.

She was shot 11 times while in her car.
